Inaugural Address of Honorable Richard J. Daley, 
Mayor. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, thereupon ad- 
dressed the City Council as follows : 

Four years ago in my inaugural address, I set 
forth the objectives, the policies, the goals of this 
administration. I said then, and repeat now, that 
I ask nothing more of the people of Chicago than 
to judge me by my actions and accomplishments 
in the next four years as chief executive of this 
great city. 

Tonight I find it difficult to express to the people 
my mingled feelings of pride and humility, of chal- 
lenge and confidence. All of my life has been lived 
in one neighborhood of Chicago, a neighborhood of 
which I am very proud. My pride in this commu- 
nity of my birth is the pride that all Chicagoans 
feel for the communities in which they live. 



April 21, 1959 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



5 



To my mother and father, to my good wife, to 
my teachers and to my good neighbors and friends, 
I am indebted far more than I can ever repay. For 
me there could be no greater reward than the vote 
of confidence expressed by the people at the polls. 
We recognize this vote as approval of the policies 
of this administration. 

We humbly accept this vote as a testimony of 
confidence and faith in our city ... in the great 
future of Chicago . . . and to the realization of that 
future we re-dedicate ourselves tonight. 

Four years ago I said : "We must take first things 
first, we must concentrate our efforts on city serv- 
ices which are essential to keep the people of Chi- 
cago the healthiest, best protected, and most pros- 
perous in the nation." 

Much has been done to improve the fundamental 
housekeeping services of the city, such as police, 
fire, health, sanitation, water, sewage, building, and 
recreation. 

However, we cannot be content with the progress 
we have made, we must continually strive to im- 
prove, to make more efficient and economical, these 
sen'ices which are vital to the welfare and well- 
being of all our people. 

We have done much to improve the police depart- 
ment by adding more than 2000 men, initiating the 
task force, doubling the number of 3-wheel motor- 
cycles, improving our communications system, and 
reducing the work hours. 

We have a fine police department, but we cannot 
be content until we have the best. We must, and 
will, insist upon higher and higher standards, and 
those in the supervisory ranks must exert a leader- 
ship based on respect and integrity. 

Our fire department is among the finest in the 
nation. Every company has been brought up to full 
strength. We have added 400 men, and provided 
new apparatus and a communications system con- 
sidered the best in the nation. The emphasis has 
been and will continue to be on fire prevention. Not 
only will schools and public buildings be subject to 
continuous inspection, but the greatly expanded fire 
prevention bureau will be even more active in every 
neighborhood. 

We appreciate that some time is needed for the 
installation of sprinklers in schools, as required by 
the new ordinance, but every effort must be made 
to protect our children from a repetition of the 
December 1st school tragedy. The people of Chicago 
expect these sprinklers to be installed in all ordi- 
nary constructed schools and other public institu- 
tions as rapidly as possible. Surely we hope the 
older schools in Chicago would be so protected by 
sprinklers by the beginning of the school semester. 

Chicago's outstanding position as one of the 
healthiest cities in the nation has been maintained. 
The health department has further increased its 
services with expanded dental and mental hygiene 
programs, the new municipal heart control center, 
and a nutrition service to help institutions caring 
for the aged. 

A pilot district health center, to bring the serv- 
ices of the health department directly to the com- 
munity, has been established on the near west side. 
More of these district health centers will be located 
in other sections of our city. 

In our program to expand and improve these vital 
housekeeping services the highest priority has been 
given to maximum economy and efficiency of opera- 
tion. 



Our adoption and application of the executive 
performance budget has received the praise of civic 
organizations throughout the nation and is being 
used as a model by other cities. It is one of Gov- 
ernment's greatest responsibilities to keep the pub- 
lic informed on how the public money is being ex- 
pended. 

The budget which we adopted gives detailed in- 
formation, not only of every expenditure, but de- 
scribes actual performance. It gives everyone an 
opportunity to analyze the city's budget and to de- 
termine the efficiency of operation. It is but one of 
the important recommendations of the Home Rule 
Commission which have been put into practice. 

We must continue to streamline our city govern- 
ment, cut through red tape, and speed up the time 
between the announcement of work to be done and 
the beginning of actual operation. 

The adoption of the modern employee classifica- 
tion and compensation plan will provide more eco- 
nomical personnel services for the city and assure 
equitable salaries for city employees. It will pro- 
mote greater efficiency, simplify budgeting of per- 
sonnel services, and encourage more qualified men 
and women to seek careers in city government. 

We must continue to concentrate on more and 
better in-training programs, better supervision and 
personnel practices that will make the best, the 
most efficient and economical use of our manpower 
and equipment. 

Above all, we will adhere strictly to the principle 
of a day's work for a day's pay. 

The fiscal position of the city has been constantly 
improved. The city's bank balances are earning the 
maximum returns through the policy of investing 
all possible current funds and promptly placing all 
bond funds in government securities until they are 
needed. In 1958, the city earned $3,200,000 on such 
short-term investments. 

Although we have one of the most far-flung pub- 
lic works programs in the nation, we have the sec- 
ond lowest bonded debt per capita of all cities of 
over 500,000 population. 

Our program to serve all the people of Chicago 
could not be fulfilled unless we expanded those 
services and activities that meet the personal and 
human problems dealing with the welfare of the 
people. 

The Commission on Human Relations continues 
to make genuine contributions in dealing with the 
most difficult problems in racial relations by creat- 
ing an atmosphere of understanding among our 
people. They have expanded their activities with a 
newcomers' program, to help the thousands of new 
workers and their families who come to Chicago 
each year. 

The Commission has established a west side cen- 
ter for Spanish-speaking people. Centers to handle 
in-migrants, staffed by expert volunteer workers, 
similar to the one on the west side today, will be 
put into operation on the north and south sides. 

The Commission on Senior Citizens, composed of 
men and women who are expert in this field, is 
initiating a program of aiding and co-ordinating 
the work of existing agencies and helping to expand 
their activities. 

The facilities for patients at the Chicago Alco- 
holic Treatment Center are being doubled. This is 
the first medical and psychiatric clinic in the nation 
for the rehabilitation of alcoholics that is com- 
pletely supported by a mvmicipality.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 21, 1959 



We have placed special emphasis on expanding 
and improving the police department's youth divi- 
sion. The Chicago Youth Bureau has been com- 
pletely reorganized and expanded. The City of Chi- 
cago today has substantially more personnel as- 
signed to prevent crime among our youth than the 
average city. With the formation of the Commis- 
sion on Youth Welfare this year, we are launching 
the most comprehensive far-flung youth program 
in the nation. 

The Commission will be an agency which will 
work actively in cooperating and coordinating the 
programs of the many youth-serving organizations 
in the city. The home, church, school and com- 
munity agencies, have each a vital role in the pro- 
gram for youth welfare. It is the leadership that 
comes from these community forces that can best 
guide our young people. 

The Commission will carry on a program in ev- 
ery neighborhood designed to bring the fullest citi- 
zen participation. The entire program is aimed at 
working with young people before they get into 
trouble. 

No subject has received as much attention in 
Chicago and in metropolitan areas throughout the 
nation as urban renewal, and rightly so. There are 
no isolated communities in the city. Blight is not 
a threat to just one area. It is a threat to all our 
neighborhoods. All of us, wherever we live, have a 
stake in the renewal and in the conservation of the 
city. 

Although the language of urban renewal speaks 
of projects, of developments, of planning and capi- 
tal improvements, of site selection, land acquisition, 
legislation and financing, we must never forget that 
the most important work is "people". The purpose 
of urban renewal is to serve people better. As we 
look ahead, how well prepared are we for traveling 
the long road to re-building, conserving, renewing 
our city? 

Underlying any program toward this goal are the 
housekeeping services, and the improvements we 
have made in police, fire, health, sanitation, schools, 
recreation, and other vital services can give us con- 
fidence for greater progress in the future. Also 
fundamental to this goal is the establishment of 
standards designed to give equal protection to all 
our communities. 

In the past four years, the City Council has 
passed a modern housing code, zoning ordinance, 
and air pollution ordinance. In addition, codes reg- 
ulating elevators, parking facilities, and nursing 
homes have been enacted. 

The building and law departments instituted new 
procedures to make these codes effective, and to 
secure more complete observance of the laws con- 
cerning the health and safety of our people. 

Task force teams made up of building, health, 
fire and law department personnel, inspected hun- 
dreds of buildings which were in violation of the 
laws. This new technique, which is now being fol- 
lowed by other cities, has forced property owners 
to comply with standards, and is doing much to 
take the profit out of slum operations. 

As a result of this program, thousands of build- 
ings are being rehabilitated by property owners 
who realize the city's determination to enforce 
proper and safe living standards for all. The city 
has obtained court orders vacating buildings that 
are hazardous and dangerous. 

One measure of the magnitude of this program 
may be judged by the fact that in 1954 only $100,- 



000 was provided in the budget for the demolition 
of hazardous buildings, while in 1959 the appropria- 
tion for this purpose is $500,000 — five times as 
great. 

The city has and will intensify its enforcement 
program against property owners who are unwill- 
ing to bring their property up to adequate stand- 
ards. 

A special unit of the building, sanitation, and 
health departments was created in 1956 to elimi- 
nate unsightly shacks and clean littered lots in 
every neighborhood. 

Throughout the city, men and women have par- 
ticipated in many different activities of the Clean- 
up Committee. Some have joined with their neigh- 
bors in block projects to improve their yards, lawns 
and alleys. Hundreds of women have gone from 
door to door in homes, businesses, and factories, to 
ask cooperation in keeping sidewalks and alleys 
clean. 

Nothing has done so much to renew the vitality 
and appearance of the neighborhoods. The city will 
continue to give to Clean-up and Sanitation its day 
by day high priority. 

In no area of activity has there been greater im- 
provement than in the services rendered by the 
Department of Streets and Sanitation. 

Street cleaning, street paving, street lighting, re- 
fuse removal and disposal, are among the most 
vital, and most costly, services rendered by local 
government. 

All main thoroughfares in the city are cleaned 
at least once weekly, as against once a month in 
1954, and every residential street is cleaned once a 
month, many of which had not previously been 
cleaned in years. 

With the further expansion and improvement of 
the Department of Streets and Sanitation, and with 
the continued help of all the fine citizens who have 
enlisted in this campaign, we will achieve our goal 
of making Chicago the cleanest big city in the 
nation. 

For many years our programs for public works 
lagged behind our needs, and those capital improve- 
ments which had been financed by bond issues were 
often far behind the time-tables for their comple- 
tion. 

It is the policy of our administration to expedite 
and expand our public works construction program. 
In every case, we have endeavored to put our bond 
funds to work for us as rapidly as possible. The 
quicker these works are built, the greater are the 
benefits to the public. 

Last year was the greatest construction year in 
Chicago's history. We shall continue to use every 
means possible, including double and triple shifts, 
to bring our comprehensive public works program 
to completion as rapidly as possible. 

The Congress Street Expressway, the extension 
of Hollywood Boulevard, the Calumet Skyway, the 
utilization of mass transportation in Congress 
Street, are examples of benefits given to the public 
as quickly as they could be. In every section of our 
city, new bridges have been constructed, streets 
have been paved, channelized, widened and lighted. 
We now have the finest public parking facilities in 
the nation. We have doubled the pace of sewer and 
water-main construction. 

These improvements, and many more that are 
visible everywhere, are the forerunners of what is 



April 21, 1959 



JOURNAI^CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO

to come. By 1960, the Northwest Expressway will 
be completed. The South Route will follow, and we 
will construct the equally important Southwest 
Route. 

Work has been started on a new bridge over the 
Chicago River at Harrison Street; contracts have 
been let for constructing the Dearborn Street 
bridge; work on the Fullerton Avenue bridge will 
begin this summer ; construction on the Damen Ave- 
nue viaduct began a few weeks ago. 

A new medical building is being constructed at 
the House of Correction; two police stations and 
two fire stations are under construction and work 
on the new fire academy is to start soon. 

Navy Pier is being readied for the opening of the 
St. Lawrence Seaway this summer. Two new deep- 
draft berths have been constructed to accommodate 
ocean-going vessels. 

Traffic that today congests busy intersections 
will be carried on new overpasses throughout the 
city. The hazardous tracks now at grade level at 
Lake Street are being elevated to the Northwestern 
Railroad. 

There is no longer any doubt of the essential 
need for adequate extension of mass transportation 
facilities. The C.T.A. is doing a good job, but its 
financial limitations are such that it must have 
assistance to expand its capital improvement pro- 
gram to better serve the metropolitan area. Such 
financial assistance would be used only for expan- 
sion of facilities, and not for the cost of operation. 

Chicago is now one of the best lighted cities in 
the nation, and in 1960 every street in Chicago 
will be made brighter and safer with modern light- 
ing. 

Pure, filtered water will be supplied to the mil- 
lions of people on the north and central sections of 
our city by the largest and most modern water 
purification plant in the world. 

Eight city water pumping stations are being 
modernized, and this year we will break ground for 
the new southwest pumping station at 84th Street 
and Keeler Avenue to serve that section of the city. 
The result of this vast water utility construction 
program will be to increase our tunnel capacity by 
one-third, and our filtration capacity fourfold. 

Four new beach sites on the North Shore have 
been cleared and improved, and we will acquire two 
more beaches soon. 

Work is under way on many recreational facili- 
ties. For example, twenty-one basketball courts are 
being built, fifteen playgrounds are being provided 
with flood-lights, three new playgrounds and six 
new play lots are under construction. Construction 
is under way for five new swimming pools. 

These physical improvements in the neighbor- 
hoods and communities are an integral part of our 
conservation program. 

Today, programs which have been sought for 
many years are becoming realities. 

For more than fifty years there have been plans 
proposed to consolidate the near south side railroad 
terminals. The rail trackage entering into the loop 
has long been a bottleneck to the development of 
our south side. Through the cooperation of the 
railroads we have made great progress toward that 
goal. 

Tomorrow, we will meet with the presidents of 
the railroads, and I am hopeful that the recom- 
mendations of the Railroad Terminal Authority 



Plan will be approved. This would pave the way 
for the location of the University of Illinois at a 
site which will be beneficial to the greatest number 
of our young people. 

Nearby, of course, will be the great new lake- 
front Convention Hall. This is another dream that 
has been brought to reality. The building will be 
completed next year. And, just as these long-sought 
objectives are becoming realities, so will the Cen- 
tral Area Plan providing a much-needed court- 
house, government and civic center, and transpor- 
tation center, become a reality. 

The five-year capital improvement plan provides 
for an expenditure of $600-minion dollars in ex- 
pressways, street lighting, traffic signals, rivers and 
harbors, waterworks, sewers, incinerators, police 
and fire department buildings, and public libraries 
in every neighborhood and community. Most of the 
funds for these projects will come from motor fuel 
taxes, federal highway program, and the sale of 
bonds already approved by the taxpayers. 

As Mayor, having the responsibility of the ap- 
pointment of school board members, I have been 
greatly pleased at the progress the Chicago Board 
of Education has made to meet the growing de- 
mands which population growth has put upon our 
public school system. 

The people of Chicago have demonstrated their 
whole-hearted support of any measure that would 
make our schools better. Since 1951, they have 
approved bond issues totaling $200-million dollars 
for construction. 

I think it is apparent that not only are our im- 
mediate needs being met, but we are also building 
for the future. 

The people of Chicago have also supported whole- 
heartedly the finest park system in the world. Since 
1950, alone, thirty-six new parks, ranging from 
twelve to thirty-five acres, have been completed. 

As a result of the consolidation of city and park 
district functions, our wonderful system of parks, 
playgrounds, beaches and other recreational facili- 
ties will be administered by one agency. This will 
eliminate overlapping of duties. 

The maintenance and operation of park district 
streets and boulevards transferred to the city will 
also reduce duplication and increase efficiency and 
economy. This was another of the long-delayed 
civic improvement proposals that has been effectu- 
ated. 

The programs and activities that I have referred 
to are all requisites of a successful urban renewal 
program. Without them, there could be no genuine 
community conservation, slum clearance, or incen- 
tive for new housing. 

I can well understand the impatience of some 
people with regard to community conservation pro- 
grams. All of us urgently desire to see our neigh- 
borhoods and communities rebuilt and revitalized. 

The problems we face did not have their begin- 
nings in this decade, nor in this century, and the 
same problems are being faced by every major city 
in the nation. 

With our central geographical location, our dyna- 
mic economy and tremendous resources, Chicago 
has been and continues to be a magnet for people 
of every race, creed, and color, from every section 
of our land and of the nations of the world. 

We must take action and make plans to meet 
physical conditions and human problems that few 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 21, 1959 



other cities have to face. No city alone has the 
financial resources to rebuild and conserve its cen- 
tral areas, its neighborhoods and communities. It 
is the metropolitan areas that are the centers of 
population, and it is the people of these areas which 
primarily support our national economy. 

Our society is becoming more and more urban, 
and the Federal government has a responsibility to 
help. To achieve the renewal of cities, the Federal 
government must give assistance to the extent of 
hundreds of millions of dollars, in a continuous 
program, extending over many years. 

I have appeared frequently in Washington with 
the Mayors of many other cities in support of this 
essential program. The enactment of bills now 
pending before the Congress would be a big step in 
the right direction. 

The community conservation process is slow 
primarily because it is a democratic approach. An 
urban renewal program, because of its great im- 
portance, its use of tremendous sums of money, 
must involve a variety of administrative proce- 
dures, a variety of checks and balances, opportuni- 
ties for all kinds of review by planning experts, 
and most important, review by the people who will 
be affected, and by the City Council. 

All of us can be proud that Chicago has been a 
pioneer in the field of urban renewal. No city in 
the nation has an urban renewal program more 
advanced than ours. All Chicago is familiar with 
the Hyde Park-Kenwood urban renewal plan. 

Nine other communities have been officially des- 
ignated as conservation areas, while the citizens of 
nineteen other communities are all working to- 
gether with programs to renew and revitalize their 
neighborhoods. 

In the coming four years, as we have in the past, 
we will devote ourselves to the community conser- 
vation programs. We shall strive to streamline 
procedures, cut red tape, reduce overlapping by 
consolidating agencies and functions wherever pos- 
sible, and employ the best talent in the field. 

Here, in Chicago, where the concept of citizen 
participation began, and, I might add, was given 
every encouragement by the city, we have thou- 
sands of people working actively in their commu- 
nities on conservation programs. There can be no 
better measure of our progress, and the participa- 
tion of people in community conservation will con- 
tinue to play an essential role in all the renewal 
programs of our city. 

One of the greatest needs of our city is housing 
— private housing — to meet the needs of every in- 
come group. It is an extremely difficult problem. 
For several years new construction did not even 
replace those buildings which had become too old 
and deteriorated to provide decent living conditions 
and those which were destroyed by fire. In recent 
months I have had many discussions with builders 
and developers. 

The progress we have made in every area of local 
government and urban renewal has brought a new 
confidence in the future of our city. I am hopeful 
that thousands of new housing units will be made 
available at rents that people can afford. 

I said a moment ago that we can all be proud of 
our pioneering in the area of urban renewal. Chi- 
cago has always been a pioneer — and we are still 
pioneering. It is particularly fitting that we are 
setting the pace in transportation because our lead- 
ership in transportation built Chicago. 



The development of our great international air- 
port as the most modern and best-equipped facility 
of its kind in the world is now a certainty. We 
are no longer looking forward to the jet age — we 
are in it — and we are prepared for it. Jet passenger 
planes are now using the airport, and each month 
we will see more of them. 

We are the railroad center, the air cross-roads, 
the trucking terminal, the highway hub of the na- 
tion. And, in just a few weeks, Chicago will begin 
its great adventure as the Number One inland port 
of the country. 

Before the close of the month, the first of the 
larger ocean-going ships that will traverse the new 
St. Lawrence Seaway will arrive at the port of Chi- 
cago. This ship will carry one of the flags of the 
many new world-shipping lines to dock at the port 
of Chicago this year. 

This summer, the eyes of the world will be fo- 
cussed on Chicago — with the Pan American Games, 
the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway, the Inter- 
national Trade Fair, and the visit of Queen Eliza- 
beth. 

Chicago has been acclaimed as the nation's most 
exciting city, and we intend to keep it that way! 

All the progress we have made, the bright future 
that lies ahead, have been made possible by the 
cooperation of all the people, people of every walk 
of life, of all political parties. 

It is no news that I am a Democrat. I am proud 
to be a leader of the Democratic Party. I am grate- 
ful for the loyal support I have from the members 
of our party, and I am equally appreciative of the 
support that was given me by Republicans and 
Independent voters. 

As I said four years ago, and repeat tonight, as 
Mayor, my employer is all the people — Democrats, 
Republicans and Independents, of every economic 
group, of every neighborhood and community. 

I wish to express also my thanks for the help 
and understanding that was given to me by the 
metropolitan community press, by radio and tele- 
vision stations. 

The improvements we have made in city govern- 
ment could not have been possible without the hard 
work, the cooperation, and the dedication of the 
members of the City Council, the Department 
Heads, the city employees, industry and labor, and 
the thousands of citizens who so willingly have 
given a helping hand. 

Our form of government is based on the premise 
that men of good will may frequently disagree 
about the prudence of an action, about the desira- 
bility of an ordinance. This is why we have a City 
Council, in order that, through debate and discus- 
sion, the wisest course may be selected. 

Certainly the members of this City Council will 
never hesitate to ask questions, to engage in de- 
bate, to approach controversy, so that the will of 
the people will be carried out. I would not have it 
any other way. 

Whatever our differences may be, we are joined 
in one common goal — to make Chicago the greatest 
city in the world. We are joined in our love for 
Chicago. 

Every city, but especially Chicago, brings to- 
gether in sharp contrast the mainsprings of our 
democratic civilization — churches and temples of 
every faith, the highest institutions of learning, the 
finest in culture and art, the contributions of every 
race, creed, color and nationality.

It is the home of individuality, of differences, and 
yet, there is a cooperation and a unity that binds 
it together. 

Chicago has a freedom, and a spirit, and a heart. 
The source of Chicago's vitality is its people, its 
strength is that we have all the advantages of com- 
munity life plus the tremendous resources of a 
great city. Designing a dream city is easy, rebuild- 
ing a living one takes working with people. 

The great Chicagoan, Daniel Burnham, set the 
goal for all who would follow him: 

"Make no little plans, they have no magic to stir 
men's blood and probably themselves will not be 
realized. Make big plans, aim high in hope and 
work, let your watchword be 'order' and your bea- 
con 'beauty'." 

Burnham loved his city, he symbolized the spirit 
of Chicago. He gave voice to that spirit in these 
words : 

"It is even now impelling us to larger and better 
achievements for the public good. It conceals no 
private purpose, no hidden ends. This spirit — the 
spirit of Chicago — is our greatest asset. It is not 
merely civic pride, it is rather the constant, steady 
determination to bring about the very best condi- 
tions of city life for all of the people, with full 



knowledge that what we as a people decide to do in 
the public interest, we can and surely will bring 
to pass." 

With your cooperation and with the cooperation 
of all the people of Chicago, and with God's help, 
we shall not and will not fail. 



Benediction Invoked by Rabbi Herman L. Davis. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, thereupon pre- 
sented Rabbi Herman L. Davis of Lakeview Anshe

and inserting in lieu thereof the following language: 

"A motion simply to lay a question on the table 
shall be debatable and". 

Alderman Hoellen moved as a substitute for the

stricken in its entirety. The motion was lost. 

The question then being put on the motion to 
amend, the motion was lost (Alderman Despres voting 
"Yea"). 

Alderman Sperling moved to amend the pending 
proposed resolution by striking out the words "five 
members" wherever they appear in the proposed Rule

motion was lost (Alderman Despres voting "Yea"). 

Alderman Sperling moved to amend the pending 
proposed resolution by striking out the following 
language occurring in the proposed Rule 45 : 

"(without debate, except by consent of the Coun- 
cil)" 

and inserting in lieu thereof the following language: 
"(subject to the right of any member to speak 
thereon for not more than two minutes)". 

The motion was lost. 

Alderman Sperling moved to amend the pending 
proposed resolution by inserting at the end of the 
proposed Rule 52 the following language: 

"A motion to suspend the rules temporarily shall 
be debatable." 

The motion was lost (Alderman Despres voting 
"Yea"). 

The question thereupon being put on the adoption 
of the pending proposed resolution, the motion pre- 
vailed. 

The following is said resolution as adopted :

Previous Question. 

Rule 26. When the previous question is moved 
on the main question, it shall be put in this form: 
"Shall the main question now be put?" If such 
motion be carried, all further amendment and all 
further motions and debate shall be excluded, and 
the question put without delay, upon the pending 
amendments in proper order, and then upon the 
main question. 

Motions to Lay on the Table and to 
Take from the Table. 

Rule 27. A motion simply to lay a question on 
the table shall not be debatable; but a motion to 
lay on the table and publish, or with any other 
condition, shall be subject to amendment and 
debate. 

A motion to take any motion or other proposi- 
tion from the table may be proposed at the same 
meeting at which such motion or proposition was 
laid upon the table, provided two thirds of the 
aldermen vote therefor. 

Rule 28. A motion to lay any particular mo- 
tion or proposition on the table shall apply to that 
motion or proposition only. An amendment to the 
main question or other pending question may be 
laid on the table and neither the main question nor 
such other pending question shall be affected, 
thereby. 

Postponement; Motion to Defer or Postpone 
Without Any Reference to Time. 

Rule 29. Subject to the provisions of Rule 27, 
consideration of a motion or other proposition may 
not be postponed indefinitely. Unless a definite 
time is set for its subsequent consideration and 
final action, a motion to defer or postpone, without 
any reference to time, shall be construed as a mo- 
tion to postpone to the next succeeding regular 
meeting. 

Motion to Refer. 

Rule 30. A motion to refer to a standing com- 
mittee shall take precedence over a similar motion 
to refer to a special committee. 

Motion to Amend. 

Rule 31. A motion to amend an amendment 
shall be in order, but one to amend an amendment 
to an amendment shall not be entertained. 

Rule 32. An amendment modifying the inten- 
tion of a motion shall be in order; but an amend- 
ment relating to a different subject shall not be 
in order. 

On an amendment to "Strike out and insert", 
the paragraph to be amended shall first be read 
as it stands, then the words proposed to be stricken 
out, then those to be inserted, and finally the par- 
agraph as it will stand if so amended shall be read. 

Rule 33. An amendment to the main question 
or other pending question may be referred to a 
committee and neither the main question nor such 
other pending question shall be affected thereby. 

Filling of Blanks. 

Rule 34. When a blank is to be filled, and dif- 
ferent sums or times proposed, the question shall 
be taken first on the least sum or the longest time. 

Motion to Substitute. 

Rule 35. A substitute for any original proposi- 



tion under debate or for any pending amendment 
to such proposition may be entertained notwith- 
standing that at such time further amendment is 
admissible ; and if accepted by the Council by vote 
shall entirely supersede such original proposition 
or amendment, as the case may be, and cut off all 
amendments appertaining thereto. 

Reconsideration. 

Rule 36. A vote or question may be recon- 
sidered at any time during the same meeting, or 
at the first regular meeting held thereafter. A 
motion for reconsideration, having been once made 
and decided in the negative, shall not be renewed, 
nor shall a motion to reconsider be reconsidered. 

Rule 37. A motion to reconsider must be made 
by a member who voted on the prevailing side of 
the question to be reconsidered, unless otherwise 
provided by law; provided, however, that where a 
motion has received a majority vote in the afl[irma- 
tive, but is declared lost solely on the ground that 
a greater number of affirmative votes is required 
by statute for the passage or adoption of such 
motion, then in such case a motion to reconsider 
may be made only by a member who voted in the 
affirmative on such question to be reconsidered. 

Resumption of Business After Adjournment. 

Rule 38. The Council shall at all regular meet- 
ings resume business at the same order on which 
it was engaged immediately preceding the last ad-

Whereas, Judge Barnes, through almost twenty- 
six years of continuous service on the Federal 
bench, had become noted for his honest independ- 
ence and unflinching adherence to "keep to the 
right as he could see the right", and his name had 
become a symbol of judicial integrity and cham- 
pion of American constitutional liberties; and 

Whereas, Through a long line of decisions in 
highly controversial cases involving government 
agencies and constitutional liberties. Judge Barnes 
contributed much to the fabric and the structure of 
our national government as it affected the lives of 
every American citizen. His influence will long be 
felt, his guidance will be seriously missed, and his 
high principled service long remembered; now, 
therefore,

Mayor of the City of Chicago hereby express their 
regret on the passing of Judge John P. Barnes ; and

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, presented (on 
behalf of himself and the other members of the City 
Council ) the following proposed resolution : 

Whereas, This Council was grieved to learn of 
the death of Stanley R. Kosinski, distinguished 
legislator and outstanding executive; and 

Whereas, Mr. Kosinski represented the 25th 
Senatorial District as a member of the House of 
Representatives for 14 years with energy and skill. 
He displayed his executive ability as chief clerk in 
the motor vehicle office of the Secretary of State, 
from 1933 to 1940, and as chief clerk from 1943 to 
1946 in the board of tax appeals of Cook County. 
He further showed executive capacity as chief clerk

tant offices his work was characterized by skill, 
judgment and a keen sense of public service; now,

Tribute Paid to Late Frank Lloyd Wright. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, presented (on 
behalf of himself and the other members of the City 
Council) the following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, April 10, 1959 marked the close of one 
of the most illustrious careers in the history of our 
country: that of Frank Lloyd Wright; and 

Whereas, Frank Lloyd Wright, architect extra- 
ordinary, brought to his chosen profession the in- 
calculable gifts of genius, imagination, individual- 
ity, creativity, integrity and industry. His love of 
beauty found expression in a wide field of creative 
forms which enriched universal conceptions of art ; 
his strong individual personality found outlet in his 
unceasing striving to translate his vision of beauty 
into reality; his imagination knew no bounds and 
he fearlessly pioneered in adapting the idealistic to 
the mundane, the beautiful to the practical, the art 
of nature to the work of man ; his energy was limit- 
less and throughout his long and full life, to its 
very end, he maintained an almost incredible tempo 
of activity and creativity in the advancement of 
art and science; now, therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That in the death of Frank Lloyd 
Wright we have lost a truly great man, one from 
whom we have inherited a legacy of beauty and an 
example of perseverance in a single cause which 
has enriched mankind; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That this resolution be 
spread upon the Record of the Proceedings of the 
City Council and an engrossed copy be presented to 
the family of Frank Lloyd Wright as an indication 
of our esteem and as a gesture of our sympathy in 
their loss. 

Committee consideration was dispensed with by 
unanimous consent, and on motion of Alderman Keane 



said proposed resolution was adopted, unanimously, 
by a rising vote.

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, presented (on 
behalf of himself and the other members of the City 
Council) the following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, For more than 60 years the Fathers 
of the Vincentian Order have operated DePaul Uni- 
versity, an outstanding institution of learning, on 
the campus at W. Fullerton and N. Sheffield Ave- 
nues ; and 

Whereas, The success and good citizenship of 
thousands of young men and women who received 
their higher education at DePaul University on the 
North Side, many of whom are prominent in the 
civic, religious and political fields in Chicago, attest 
the important part the staff has played in develop- 
ing character, administering spiritual guidance and 
imparting knowledge to students of the University ; 
and 

Whereas, Within recent years, through the bene- 
volence of a kind and unselfish benefactor, Mr. 
Frank J. Lewis, the University was blessed with an 
opportunity of making their facilities conveniently 
available to additional students through the estab- 
lishment of a new downtown campus in the build- 
ing at No. 25 E. Jackson Boulevard; and 

Whereas, During the week of April 26 to May 3,

junction with the dedication of this new downtown 
campus, and on May 2, 1959, at 10:00 a.m.. His 
Excellency Most Reverend Albert G. Meyer, Arch- 
bishop of Chicago, will dedicate the new University 
building; therefore.

erend Father Comerford O'Malley, President, and 
the faculty of DePaul University for the wonderful 
work that has been and is being done in the area 
of education of our youth, which will be reflected 
in the welfare of our City and the well-being of its 
citizens; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the week from April 
26 to May 3, 1959 be and the same is hereby de- 
clared "DePaul Week"; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the City Council of 
Chicago embraces this opportunity of congratulat-

the Governors of many states, and many municipal

focus attention upon our Nation as being a democ-

for our Nation's great progress and achievements,

that which exists under Communism; and 

Whereas, The Mayor and the members of the

rule of law which has worked so well in the settle- 
ment of disputes between individuals should be 
utilized in the peaceful settlement of disputes be-

international affairs, it is desirable that the atten- 
tion of the people of the United States be again 
focused upon the rule of law and its tremendous 
importance and value to our Nation and to the 
world; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That Friday, May 1, 1959, be 
proclaimed by the Mayor of the City of Chicago as 
"Law Day U.S.A." in the City of Chicago, and we 
call upon all citizens, organizations and schools to

States which maintains and supports two major 
league baseball teams, evidencing the interest and 
enthusiasm of the baseball fans of the city in the 
White Sox in the American League and the Cubs 
in the National League; and 

Whereas, In the season of 1959 which has just 
opened in this city both teams give promise of im- 
proving their respective league standing over last 
year; and 

Whereas, The managements of these teams have 
provided two of the finest baseball parks in the 
United States for the comfort and convenience of 
their patrons; both parks are conveniently located 
with reference to transportation and parking facili- 
ties, Comiskey Park, the home of the White Sox on 
the South Side, and Wrigley Field, the home of the 
Cubs on the North Side; now, therefore. 

Be It Resolved, by the City Council of the City of

this season will bring to our major league teams 
improved standing, greater support and lasting 
fame.

their profession, secretaries are accepting vital re- 
sponsibilities and are performing important roles in

Whereas, The City of Chicago has a population
